Sharon Turner: Boasting about taking more from us in taxes


Dear Editor,

The issue on the ground is ultimately this: the government is taking more of the peoples money, but doing less for the people in a tangible way with the extra money it is taking. That is what more revenue versus less expenditure ultimately amounts to in real terms. So yes, you have a figure for first quarter (and it is only first quarter), but all governments must ask themselves how is life changing on the ground for everyday people in their everyday lives

Yes you are collecting more in VAT, but all that means is our bills have increased and we have less of our own money to spend. Yes you are choosing not to spend money on certain things...

When you confirm, the article summary above, will be emailed to your chosen email address.
